Software :: Macbook Pro Will Not Boot Safe Mode Kernel Panic?

Nov 10, 2010

my name is SPC Sanders. I am a forward observer currently deployed to Afghanistan. I've owned a Macbook Pro for a couple of years.

About three weeks ago, I made the stupid mistake of attempting to run iOSX so I could dual boot with Windows 7 (all stuff I acquired while I was home on midtour leave.) The install seemed to be ok, however, I noticed immediately I could not make any changes to settings as my administrator password was no longer working. (Administrator is my only account on this laptop.)

At fear of losing my operability, I simply did not power down for that whole time. However, I recently moved bases, and alas, the time came to power down.

Upon bootup, I get a constant spinning wheel. I left this on for a couple of hours just to be sure, then realized it was a lost cause. I tried booting in safe mode, and I got some kernel panic. It says a bunch of stuff about debugger calling the panic, bla bla bla, but the thing that caught my eze was Mac OS version not set yet.

After booting in safe mode, getting that error, and powering off, my laptop will boot into a grezish blueish lightblueish (alternating) type of screen, which sometimes has the spinning wheel, sometimes not. Again, nothing.

I understand I will probably need my OS disc to fix this, but I didn't bring it with me. Am I SOL?

OS X :: Mac Os X Snow Leopard Kernel Panic On Shutdown

Sep 4, 2009

I am pretty new to the forums but I installed snow leopard on an 2008 iMac 2.4 ghz, 3gb of ram and 250gb hard drive on September 1, 2009 and had no problems shutting down.

Then on Wednesday when I shut down it goes into a kernel panic and tells me to restart. When I go into the other user account it does not do that. I have a picture of the error log that i got when I started the computer up to submit to Apple. Can someone please help.

I have reset PRam, repaired permissions, and reinstalled Snow Leopard but recovered it from a Time Machine Backup. I do not know what to do.

OS X :: Snow Leopard And Consistent Kernel Panic

Dec 13, 2009

First the bad news - consistent kernel panics
Good news - found a remedy in disabling my screen saver.
I'd like to use my screen saver without getting kernel panics. I've tried erasing my drive and restoring from a back up. resetting PRAM, repaired permissions and ran Tech Tool Pro 5 (file structures and repaired permissions, everything else checked out fine).

Intel Mac :: PeerGuardian Appears To Be Causing Kernel Panic?

Jun 25, 2012

PeerGuardian appears to be causing kernel panic and my iMac to continuously srash, and yet I cannot find it to uninstall - Spotlight yields no results at all, and I have removed it from login items under System Preferences / Accounts. I want to remove PeerGuardian completely to see if this resolves the kernel panic but don't see (a) how I can, given that I can't find it anywhere and/or (b) how it can be causing a kernel panic if I can't find it anywhere!

OS X :: Snow Leopard Kernel Panic When Login As User

Aug 29, 2009

I've upgraded my MBP to Snow Leopard today from Leopard and I'm getting a Kernel Panic when I login as one user. Logging in as an Admin user or a new user account is fine, and I still get the Kernel Panic if I boot up in to Safe Mode. It's obviously a problem with the user account and looking at the dump log it seems to be caused trying to mount something, but I can't for the life of me track it down.

OS X :: Installed Snow Leopard - Rebooted And Get Kernel Panic

Aug 30, 2009

Installed Snow Leopard (retail box) onto a last-gen Aluminum MacBook Pro (2.6Ghz model). Did a time machine backup. Put in CD and upgraded. Rebooted with no peripherals plugged in and I get a kernel panic. There's only one user on this machine so I can't see if it's an account problem. I did the same thing on both my Macbook Air and 17" MacBook Pro.

Question: Do I have to now Reinstall Leopard (fresh)
Then update Snow Leopard
Then restore from Backup?
Install Leopard
Recover from time machine backup
Then install Snow Leopard

I don't have all day and really don't want to screw up the process. Is there any thing else that might say why this kernel panic is happening?

Software :: MacBook Stuck With Kernel Panic Message

Feb 25, 2010

I was trying to help my husband with his phone. I followed the phone's manufacturer's suggestions and it told me load software for managing it. When I went to install it the computer told me it had 59 things to install. It was late, I was tired and shouldn't have been doing this at this time. I did, when it was done installing we had a kernel panic. I am in a different country, in a village. No MacStore! I am frightened and worried. I am computer literate for a person my age, but still. If it is to be resolved I will have to do it and I wish the kids were here with their friends. I am hoping someone will be able to talk me out of this predicament.

I have tried to press the shift key for safe mode. No result. I have tried another one that has me pressing some buttons while loading and text comes up and I am supposed to type in FSCK -fy However this could not be done as the cursor was there, but no text was appearing. I think that is all I have tried. I do have my MacBook here and it is slightly older than his. I may have a firewire that may work to run his off of mine. I don't know. Can't you come in like Verizon did years ago and fix it right in front of me over the internet?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Kernel Panic While Trying To Backup With Time Machine

May 29, 2012

Over the weekend I tried to backup my MacBook Pro onto an external harddrive, and when about 23Gb out of 110Gb were completed, my mac went into a kernel panic ("You need to restart your computer. hold down the power button until it turns off, then press the power button again." in four languages). Previous backups went fine. So I did a reformat of the ext. hdd, same thing: after about 20 or so Gb of backup, the msg. pops. otherwise the mac runs without problems. Did a virus check, which came up negative.

Here is the panic log:
Interval Since Last Panic Report: -6 sec
Panics Since Last Report:1

Intel Mac :: Keeps Booting In Safe Mode Plus Kernel Panic?

Apr 17, 2012

a bit complicated.   I have a 3 year old iMac, Snow Leopard 10.5.2 on the dics, but I updated it so..a pretty receent version of Snow Leopard. I had had kernel panics before- it turned out to be a bad RAM chip, replaced it and it fixed the problem. 

This time, I was hoping it was the same. I got a new RAM chip, swapped them out and ID'ed the bad one.  Reseated the RAM. Probelm is, when I was trying to fix the problem, I had booted in Safe Mode.  Now the iMac starts up normally- the chime, the Apple- AND the Safe Mode bar.

Which progresses for about 5 seconds before another Kernel panic descends.  This happens whether the keyboard is connected or not.  At this point the Safe Mode at startup bugs me more than the kernel panics! Sigh. 

I wonder if there's any key combo on startup I could try to at least get out of Safe Mode before Kernel panic sets in.  When my laptop has a kernel panic i can usually repair with Disk repair on CD.   I realize this sounds hopeless!  And i need it repaired, but money is an issue.

Mac Pro :: Get Multi Language Message After Every Reboot - OS X Kernel

Dec 7, 2010

As the title says, every time I reboot I get the multi-language kernel panic message (You need to restart your computer. Please hold down the power button for....). I've managed to get into the GUI by using different combinations of keys. I can't remember what they are (it's been different every time), but I believe one time it was holding 'x'. This time, I held Command+V to run what looked like a diagnostic POST (I actually did this to see where in the bootup it hanged, but instead it booted to GUI).

Any idea what this could be? I don't think anyone has added any third-party RAM (this was not my machine originally, I took over a position for another person), is there a way I can check if any RAM has been added?
I'm running 10.5.8 with 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 and a 2x2.66 Dual Core Intel Xeon.

Here's the Problem Report for Mac OS X Kernel:.................

Mac Pro :: Kernel Panic On Screen With Restart Message

Jun 17, 2010

I turned up one day to teach using the Mac Pro and the message on the screen said I had to restart my computer. After many times I gave up. I wrongly thought the hard disk failed as one of the pupils saw some water underneath the Mac from the leaking roof. I checked and formatted the hard drive inside a pc and put Windows on it. After inserting the hard drive and the OSX into the dvd drive proceeded to re-install the software, only to find exactly the same problem as before. What to check next before trying to find someone to fix it.

Applications :: Kernel Panic Message - Restart Computer

Jul 26, 2010

My imac has started to have a kernel panic all the time lately. It is where the whole screen will go darker and then a box in all different languages comes up saying I need to restart the computer. I have a couple of questions in relation to this, first if I reinstall and then back up from timemachine will I have the same issue again? If I do a fresh install and reimport all my music and vids manually will that be a better way to do things?

MacBook Pro :: Snow Leopard Has A 32bit Kernel As The Default Like 64bit Kernel?

Aug 13, 2009

Yes you read that right. Your brand spanking new MBP will use a 32-bit kernel as default.

You can force 64-bit kernel but some of your hardware will not be working.

So all that marketing crap about the benefits of 64-bit etc are all B.S.

I don't want a million threads about how this will not effect the running of 64 bit apps, etc. because it will. Your 64-bit app will run but it will not be able to address more than 4Gb of RAM.

There are also many more advantages to having a 64-bit kernel.

OS X :: Leopard Kernel Panic On Installation

Dec 25, 2008

I have a 2 GHz Intel Core Duo MacBook with 1GB of SDRAM. I have OS X Tiger v. 10.4.6, and I just recieved Leopard v. 10.5.4, and I am attempting to install it. If it makes any difference, I have my harddrive partitioned - 40GB for OS X, and 30GB for Ubuntu Linux (8.10 Intrepid Ibex), and rEFIt to switch between the two. I booted into Tiger and popped in the Leopard installation DVD. A window popped open with an icon to install Leopard. I double clicked on this, and it told me to restart. So, I pressed the restart button in the window, and the computer restarted, automatically booting into the OSX DVD.

The Apple logo popped up, with the little spinning wheel. It churned for a few minutes, then it had a kernel panic: So, I did as the notification told me, and restarted. It automatically booted into the DVD again, and the same thing happened. Next time, as a booted up, I held the eject key down, and I was able to get the DVD out. So, I'm back to where I started, but I don't have Leopard installed. There are several minor scratches on the DVD, but nothing I would expect to mess with the DVD. Another thing: I popped in the Leopard DVD, and opened the Disk Utility after this fiasco, and verified the DVD. I got this error output:

Verifying volume "disk1s3"
Checking HFS Plus volume.
Checking Extents Overflow file.
Checking Catalog file.
Checking multi-linked files.
Checking Catalog hierarchy.
Invalid node structure
The volume Mac OS X Install DVD needs to be repaired.

Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
1 HFS volume checked
Volume needs repair
However, the "Repair Disk" button is greyed out. I don't want to go through the Apple Support Hotline.

OS X :: Kernel Panic When Trying To Install 10.5 Leopard

Oct 15, 2009

Bought a new Macbook Pro 2.8 a few days ago (newest one with longer battery), it shipped with Snow Leopard. However, I believe the Hardware is still the same as before Snow Leopard was released, so it should work with Leopard 10.5.

If I try to use a Leopard disc it just doesn't boot, or it comes up with a kernel panic. I even installed Leopard on my 2.5" in my Mac Pro first, then tried booting it on the macbook pro. Same thing, kernel panic. Have they added some kind of lock to the hardware that stops Leopard from being loaded? I thought they would only do that when new hardware is released.

Software :: Getting Kernel Panic Before Leopard Started

Jul 23, 2008

I have a Macbook with 10.5.4 and got a kernel panic suddenly. My Macbook was off. Yesterday evening I shut it down and everything was well with it, no problems at all. This morning I turned it on, and after the normal grey screen at the startup, I got a kernal panic before Leopard even started. I am familiar with kernel panics but not when they occur before the system started. I turned my Macbook off and on again while holding the Alt, Apple, P and R keys and waited for the chime, 3 times. After that, my Macbook started normally, no kernel panics, it just started the system and I was ready to go. However, I am really scared now. Does a kernel panic at startup indicate harddisk problems? Was it just a coincidence? I am afraid to turn my computer off, it might get a kernel panic again. I checked permissions and all seemed well, but I am hoping someone can tell me more about kernel panics at startup.

MacBook :: Macbook Leopard Kernel Panic?

Feb 2, 2009

My macbook recently had a kernel panic while running Leopard i got from the previous owner. (restart screen at turn on, would keep showing it.) I re-seated the ram, tried with one out and one in, vice versa, reset the PRam, the NVRAm the EVERYTHINGram, still no go.

I reinstalled the os using the install disks that came with my macbook, but of course it had to come with tiger, so now im back in circa 2006.I also have a macbook pro. Would i be able to use the macbook pro's CD on my macbook to give me Leopard?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Modified Permissions Now MacBook Pro Won't Reboot

Jun 9, 2012

I have a snowleopard macbook pro and earlier I did what shouldn't be allowed a user to do. I modified the computer's permissions to read-only or write only. After I did that nothing opened. Apps or folders or files. So I reboot and It won't reboot either.The same thing happened to me about 2 years ago and I found a pretty much straightforward solution. Pressing command- or alt-something while booting and then just fixing the thing.I have tried to find a solution like that again on google and in here and mostly what I've found are solutions that involve re-installing the whole OS.
